Wholesaler i3 Networks is adding NexTone Communications Multiprotocol Session Exchange (MSX) and Real-Time Session Manager (RSM) products to its fractional switch program, giving VoIP service providers the ability to add network capacity with little capital and operational expenditures.
i3 Networks said its partners now can add SIP routing and session control on a per-port basis on the NexTone MSX platform. Pricing includes Internet connectivity.
The NexTone RSM, meanwhile, lets network engineers monitor endpoints, routers and service quality metrics, view CDRs, and set alarm parameters and alert methods.
Carriers also can generate reports on profitability by route, manage least-cost-routing tables, and change routes based on cost and QoS.
With the ongoing explosion in IP telephony, service providers we have spoken to would rather invest in attracting new customers and not tie up their capital in equipment, said Christopher Reese, founder, president and CEO of i3 Networks.
